About prognosis:

The 'prognosis' of Hepatitis C usually refers to the likely outcome of Hepatitis C. The prognosis of Hepatitis C may include the duration of Hepatitis C, chances of complications of Hepatitis C, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Hepatitis C, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Hepatitis C. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
